D is a vulnerable young man on a very low income. Most of his disability benefits have been stopped due to an error. He needs to replace his washing machine but has no disposable income and no hope of saving any money. He is being supported by the Ancora Help Through Crisis project in Oldham.
A is a single mum with a disabled child, her washing machine has broken and she cannot afford to purchase a new one. She is having to use a local foodbank at the moment as money is so tight, when she can afford it she uses a local launderette but this is very difficult when she is looking after her son so any help would be really appreciated.
E requires help in setting up a Sensory Zone for two of her six children who have disabilities. They currently all live in a two bedroom house therefore these two children really need a safe place to go for when they are having a fit or meltdown away from the other children. This money would be used for decorating the sensory zone - items such as furniture, pillows and lights. Any help you could give this family would be very gratefully received. Thank you.
Our client is disabled, has heart problems causing fatigue and is on a limited income, and his microwave oven has just broken. Due to his fatigue, he finds a microwave better for cooking as he is not standing for long periods of time when cooking. A good quality 800w microwave would enable him to carry on doing this helping him manage his fatigue.
This lady has mental and physical disabilities and is unable to afford a replacement battery for her mobility scooter. She is very socially isolated and we are supporting her to access community opportunities to get out and to make new friends and to perhaps do some voluntary work which she would love to do. Any help towards a replacement mobility scooter battery would be most gratefully received.
This 57 year old gentleman suffers from autism and bi-polar disorder and has been living in a hostel. He has recently been deemed ready for independent living and has moved into a local authority flat. He is in receipt of Universal Credit which barely covers the cost of essential expenditure so cannot afford to purchase the one-off items needed to set up his new home. White goods have been sourced from various charities but your help is needed to provide him with a bed.
This single Mum of three is unable to work due to her disability and has found herself in debt during the process of being moved onto Universal Credit. She is currently relying heavily on the food bank and is behind with her bills. This support will help her to pay for essentials as she waits for her Universal Credit to come through.
Miss J moved into the property six months ago and it is a 2nd floor flat. There are no carpets so she can sound quite loud to the people living below when she is walking around. This has resulted in complaints which have really upset her. She has hearing difficulties so listens to television and talks louder as well, although not on purpose. She is deaf and has a cochlear implant. She would like to replace the current lino with carpet so that the people living below can't hear her anymore.
The client is on a low income,Employment and Support Allowance totalling £102.15 per week, which covers essential costs including arrears payments relating to costs incurred during his recent stay at a residential care placement.He has acquired brain injury and was hospitalised for several months. When he was in hospital his property was broken into and all electrical items were stolen. He is very vulnerable and has been moved to a new unfurnished flat but has no essential white goods.
